Seal Support Service

Thanks to the combined knowledge and experience of our talented team of engineers at Swagelok Central UK we are able to provide pre and post-installation advice and maintenance on every aspect of your system. Our Rotating Equipment Seal Support Service is a targeted evaluation that focuses on the repair and maintenance of seal support systems and lubrication skids according to API 682 and API 614 Standards and customer specific requirements. By working with you to identify your key goals and expectations of your system encompassing wet and dry seals we can help you to implement the specific solutions unique to your needs, ensuring that rotating equipment seal deterioration and safety concerns are minimised.

Our Seal Support Service functions by providing an onsite discussion with our engineers and technicians and a complete system survey. They will identify process data, and system issues, and begin the process of solution identification. We believe that issues such as incorrect installation and the difficulty to repair seals should not be an impediment to the functionality of your system and so we will work with you to address any problems and implement solutions that will ensure that your system is efficient and productive.

Best Practice

API 682 standard improves safety reliability and performance. It is the leading 'Best Practices' document for mechanical seals petrochemical, chemical, and pipeline services worldwide.

  • Research has shown that the biggest preventative measure of mechanical seal failure is the use of effective Seal Support Systems. This means that no matter how well designed your mechanical seal or bearing systems are, without a reliable Seal Support System there is still the possibility of your mechanical seal failing.
